Цитиран нашиот труд за страбизам и рефрактивни аномалии кај Down syndrome

Почитувани колешки и колеги,
Уште една цитираност на нашиот труд од Ljubic A, Trajkovski V и Stankovic B. "Strabismus, refractive errors and nystagmus in children and young adults with Down syndrome". Цитирани сме во: Differences of the Anterior Segment Parameters in Children with Down Syndrome од
објавено во Ophthalmic Genetics posted online on April 22, 2013. (doi:10.3109/13816810.2013.789535)


Purpose: The study was undertaken to investigate whether anterior segment findings are different in children with Down syndrome (DS) to normal children and to focus on its clinical significance.
Methods: A cross-sectional case control study was conducted in a total of 38 children with DS and 42 healthy children. This is the first report in the literature stating that. All subjects underwent ophthalmologic examination including slit-lamp biomicroscopy, cycloplegic refraction, intraocular pressure measurement and Scheimpflug imaging measurement. Customized software for Pentacam was used to analyze structural indices of anterior segment parameters. The mean anterior segment values of right eyes were compared between the groups.
Results: The mean anterior chamber parameters of patients with DS and controls were measured respectively: Corneal thickness was 502.31 ± 40.5 and 541.8 ± 37.42 mm (p < 0.001), corneal volume was 56.63 ± 4.5 and 61.02 ± 4.3 mm3 (p < 0.001), corneal radius curvature was 7.41 ± 0.29 and 7.67 ± 0.34 mm (p < 0.001), iridocorneal angle was 39.7 ± 6.2 and 39.5 ± 6.4° (p = 0.944), anterior chamber volume was 181.65 ± 27.38 and 185.77 ± 32.53 mm3 (p = 0.528), anterior chamber depth was 3.08 ± 0.24 and 3.02 ± 0.31 mm (p = 447), pupil size was 2.95 ± 0.48 and 3.29 ± 0.45 mm (p < 0.05).
Conclusion: The majority of the anterior segment parameters were found to be different in children with Down syndrome. While pupil size, corneal thickness, corneal volume and corneal curvature in DS were less than normal, iridocorneal angle, anterior chamber depth and anterior chamber volume were close to controls. The most important parametric differences in children with DS were seen on the cornea.
